Today’s mani

Hi Beauties

And yes surprise surprise I’m ill again, how do I get two chest infections in the space of a month? Unlucky me.

I’ve finally started journaling again so if any of you are interested I’ll do a flip through post,

Anyway let’s get to the point of why I’m posting, today’s mani is ‘Bullet’ from MUA its a shade I don’t wear that often but I’m glad I did. It is a very deep grey shade that screams winter, it’s opaque in around three coats and is quite quick to dry.

A huge thank you to Cathy from Ginger Beauty Blog for the stunning swatches, she really does this polish justice.

Thanks for reading beauties, they’ll be more to come very soon.

Barry M Silk Collection- Darks

Hi Beauties

I’m posting early because I have a lot to sort out today, this post is actually a part two of my Barry M Silk Collection series, you can see part one here which is about the lighter more summery side of the collection, but since winter is here I thought I’d bring all of my beauties the deeper darker side of the Silk Collection.

‘Forest’ is a lovely deep green shade with a pretty silver shimmer finish, in my opinion it is more of s blue based green which makes it a lot more suitable for this collection and the season than if it were a rich emerald green.

‘Poppy’ is a beautiful deep red shade, that still keeps its true redness, I. Saying that I mean it still manages to look dark and wintery without having too much of a purple/ blue undertone.

Finally ‘Orchid’ is a lovely royal rich toned deep purple with ties this collection up beautifully, for me it is the perfect balance of ‘Poppy'(s) purple/ blue undertone and the stunning green of ‘Forest’.

I love all of these polishes so much, to me they’re very gothic shades and would be perfect as a way to move away from the more pastel shades of the Silk Collection and embrace the winter months.

‘Holiday Wishes’ From Sinful Colors

Hi Beauties

As many of you know Revlon has always been my favourite nail polish brand, but for me Revlon is sometimes a little too expensive, polishes start at £6.00 and can sell for as high as £10.00 a bottle. When my budget can’t stretch to Revlon’s prices I can still get my polish fix, from none other than Sinful Colors, they have a fantastic formula, a huge array of shades to choose from and they only retail for £1.99 a bottle and I think you’ll agree that’s an absolute bargain.

Since Christmas is just around the corner Sinful Colors have bought out there ‘Holiday Wishes’ collection, which features stunning blue and gold based polishes that are perfect for the festive season.

‘All About You’ is a beautiful copper based gold glitter that will look amazing, adding sparkle to any outfit. The richer hues of red toned copper make this polish stunning for an evening get together.

‘Endless Blue’ is quite a bold cobalt blue shade, that in my opinion has a very casual feel to it, this polish would be perfect to wear when lounging around the house on Boxing Day watching reruns of old movies and blogging or vlogging about what you got for Christmas 2014.

‘Ice Blue’ is by far my favourite shade in this collection, it is a deep blue base with flecks of silver micro glitter which remind my of a snowy night sky in Christmas Eve, Devine.

‘Ice Dream’ seems to me to be the more casual counterpart to ‘Ice Blue’ it is still blue based with silver glitter but this time the blue is lighter, it reminds me somewhat of melting icicles.

‘Cinderella’ is a sky blue, white based shade that is featured in this collection, it is one that I have had for nearly two years so it’s not exactly a new addition to the Sinful Colours range, however I can see why they included it, it’s a stunning shade that in my opinion is a winter must have.

‘Gilded’ is a deep blue based shade again with sliver micro glitter, it is not as dark as ‘Ice Blue’ yet not as light as ‘Ice Dream’, it is infact the perfect balance between the two and brings to mind the Christmas classic The Snowman, it just has that kinda feel to it.

Finally ”Gold Medal’ is a solid gold shade with somewhat of a metallic shimmer to it, it is in my opinion the most disappointing of this collection, although it is a pretty colour it just doesn’t feel very festive to me.

Orly Bountiful ‘Blush’ Collection

Hi Beauties

I think this is going to be my last post of the night then I’m going to snuggle down and sleep off the rest of my antibiotics, fun.

Now I know this isn’t very autumn, fall or winter themed, but I was browsing the Orly website and I came across their spring 2014 collection called ‘Blush’, I was shocked to find it I never knew it existed but I immediately fell in love with the colours.

‘First Blush’ (appropriately named’ is a bright pink with a coral undertone which I think gives the colour a very summery edge, making it a very wearable shade for someone who wants to rock a bright mani not to shock people with it.

IMG_3283.JPG

‘Naked Canvas’ is basically what it says on the tin, it’s a very creme based white, which would look lovely on someone with a more olive skin tone, I’m very pale and sadly ‘Naked Canvas’ makes me look a little washed out.

IMG_3284.JPG

‘Flawless Flush’ is a light white based pink which looks very vintage to me, in my opinion it’s the perfect romantic colour for those early autumn days when the leaves are just beginning to fall from the frees, ‘Flawless Flush’ is by far my favourite shade from this collection.

IMG_3285.JPG

‘Dare To Bare’ is a grey toned brow shade which would make the perfect nude manicure, because it walks the line between broken and grey without slipping, it means that ‘Dare To Bare’ is very multi seasonal, it will look just as classic and subtle on a beach in summer as it would curled up infront of a fire with a good book in winter.

‘Cheeky’ is the perfect halloween orange shade, the flecks of silver micro glitter give it a very pretty eye catching finish, love this colour.

IMG_3287.JPG

Finally ‘Classic Contours’ is to me a strange colour, it’s purple yet it has hints brown and pink. It’s a pretty yet unusual colour which is a feature that again like ‘Dare To Bare’ makes this polish very multi seasonal. ‘Classic Contours’ and ‘Flawless Flush’ will defiantly be making an appearance in my polish collection soon.

I Want Essence

Hi Beauties

I hope you are all doing well, right now I’m so so bored so I’m posting to keep myself entertained.

I’m considering buying essence nail polish, I’ve read some reviews and watched some YouTube videos and they seem great, very pigmented and cheap, so here are the polishes from essence I want in my collection.

The first is ‘Precious Peacock’ which is a very beautiful emerald green colour, I defiantly want this colour for autumn.

The second ‘essence’ polish I want is called ‘Columbus Circle Crimson’ it’s not as red or as dark as the name suggests, to me it is less crimson and more pillar box red.

IMG_3035.JPG

‘East Village’ is another lovely colour it is more blue toned than ‘Precious Peacock’ but it is still a deep rich colour, I think this polish would be more suited for spring or summer.

IMG_3036.JPG

‘Grernwich Village’ is a polish that you might expect to be well, green. Instead it’s a stunning summery hot pink colour, a definite polish want for spring of 2015.

IMG_3037.JPG

The fifth polish I want in my collection is called ‘Park Ave’ which for me is a stunning tree trunk brown shade that screams autumn, it’s also a very neutral colour so would be perfect for the office.

IMG_3038.JPG

‘Minted On Broadway’ is a very bright very summery mint blue shade, but at the same time it can also give a mani that icy winter look.

IMG_3039.JPG

Finally ‘Side walkers’ is a classic wintery grey shade, it’s a beautiful yet neutral shade which gives an effortless finish to any outfit.
